So what is right near you in your back yard? I have traveled the world and had an opportunity to train with some of the very finest martial artists out there. Some you can only train with if you go to them ie. Hatsumi Sensei. Many others are available to train with near you as they travel and teach. Such as my recent training experience in Dekiti Tirsia Siradas with Grand Tuhon Nene Tortal. Though you can travel all the way to the Philippines to train with him as well. Yet it may come to a shock to most that probably right in their back yard or immediate area within a radius of say fifty to a hundred miles are some very, very talented martial practitioners and teachers. No one region of the world has a higher percentage of great martial practitioners to train with. Though the system that they teach may vary georgraphically. If you look around in your immediate area you may just be surprised at what you find. You may find that world class martial practitioner and teacher right near you. During my life I was blessed in having excellent teachers right in the towns that I lived in and ones that traveled and taught close enough to drive to easily. Michigan and the midwest in general has always had a great number of tough as nails martial practitioners and instructors. You may have had to look a bit to find them and seperate them from the average ones but in general this region has always been blessed. Some of the absolute best I have trained with have been virtually unknown outside of their geographical area. Maybe they just did not seek the lime light but their skills and teaching was first rate. When pursuing your martial training look around and check out what is in your area and then see if it works for you. Who knows you may come across that world class practitioner right in your back yard!
See You On The Mats!
